I was at the range this week sighting in a new Mossberg 590A1 shotgun, 9 shot, 20" barrel, ghost ring sights. I sighted it in at 50 yards with the Sellier & Bellot Special Slug Sport 1 oz. slug load (My favorite slug load. Very accurate and reduced recoil so it doesn't kill your shoulder.).

Once that fun was done, I tried some Federal Tactical 00 reduced recoil 9 pellet loads. I had the original load, and then the same load with the Flite Control wad. At 25 yards, the original load produced approx. 12" groups from the cylinder bored barrel (Not bad, and much better than I expected...). The load with the Flite Control wad produced 6" groups. Both groups were nice and round, with the pellets evenly distributed.

At 50 yards, I only tried the Flite Control load, and it gave approx. 13" patterns. Very impressive!

Both buckshot loads had points of impact that matched very closely to the sights that had been zeroed for the slug load.

As expected, the Mossberg 590A1 chugged right along with no problems. I'm a happy camper!!!!

Thanks, I didn't realize the non premium brands had Low Recoil slugs available.
